PE is  on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.  Children  should have their PE kits in school at all times. Please ensure it is named very clearly. 

 

Homework

Homework will be given out weekly - this term on a Tuesday to be returned by the following Monday. In addition to daily reading, you may like to practise tables (both multiples and division) up to 12x12 at home. 

The children continue to be responsible for completing their reading diaries at home but remind them to bring them into school to receive extra house points. 

 

Spelling and Grammar

The New National Curriculum of English has a greater emphasis on spelling and grammar than previously.  This is proving to be a great challenge to many of the children.  Teaching the children the spelling patterns and rules, as well as grammar, is taking high priority.   If you could help the children learn words from the Year 3/4 spelling list, this would very much help them.  These can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-english-programmes-of-study/national-curriculum-in-england-english-programmes-of-study#years-3-and-4-programme-of-study
